Ran #6 of the Tiki series last night. I was not into it and my knee was raging I couldn't find my Altra trail shoes, my stomach was feeling kind of edgy, and I had a headache, just one of those days.
Right after we got there I started talking to the Salomon shoe rep and heard the crunch and squeal. At the same time we said that didn't sound good. It was weird because the sound was backward. And I saw near miss earlier in the day when I let a cop go in front of me (he had his lights on and did that police car honk) this car behind me went zipping around a just missed slamming into the cop
Boy was he pissed!! I am so glad I was not that woman his gestures alone scared me.
But...The ski area has this weird entrance that comes up fast so I'm guessing someone was following too close and then someone turned to quickly. Any hoozit.. the postponed the race for 15 minutes. So now I'm really not into it..but I thought it was considerate that they delayed for those stuck in the accident back up.
I could not find my pace, could not breath evenly, my feet hurt in the shoes I was wearing. My sports bra (since surgery none fit right) was pinching me MEH
But I got through it, not a great time, but not terrible either 33:41. When you finish you have to turn in your bib (they reuse them every week you get the same number if you sign up for the series or are regular). When I turned in my bib the woman who always seems to know me (need to find out her name) and is always talking to me asks "why didn't you sign up for the series?" Instead of telling her my long boring poor me story, I hate it when people are always playing the cancer card, so I just said "long story, wasn't sure I'd make all of them" she says well I'm getting you a shirt next week you are always here! So sweet! When I check in they always think I'm a series runner.
All in all not a bad night...
